Shelter, Health Club, Nursery School at WFCCA

Shelter, Health Club, Nursery School at WFCCA

A family shelter, a health club and a nursery school are among the cases to be considered next week by the West Fairfax County Citizens Association (WFCCA) Land-Use Committee.

The members will meet Tuesday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m., in Supervisor Michael R. Frey's (R-Sully) conference room in the Fort Hill Building, 5900 Centreville Road in Centreville. The public is welcome; here's what's slated:

* Fairfax County wants to construct a family shelter and two transitional housing units near the intersection of Route 29 and Stringfellow Road, just west of Meadows Farms Nursery. The shelter would serve 20 families; the average length of stay would be 90 days.

* Old Centreville Crossing merchants want to increase the size of their sign at the shopping center.

* The Mulford School owners are requesting a special-exception permit to operate a nursery school on 7.5 acres on the south side of Route 29, near Virginia Run. The site is directly opposite Centreville Baptist Church.

* Olympus Gym is seeking a special permit to operate a health club on the east side of Lee Road and the west side of Route 28.

* Fairfax County wants to amend the zoning ordinance regarding outdoor-lighting standards for a variety of uses including recreation and service stations, as well as security lighting.

Three other cases may also be heard at Tuesday's meeting but, at press time, the WFCCA was awaiting confirmation from the applicants:

* Oglethorpe Ltd. Partnership is requesting a special exception to build a beverage-distribution facility at the northeast corner of Braddock and Old Lee roads, across from the Quinn property.

* Chantilly Crossing Shopping Center wants a special exception for a waiver of sign regulations and site modifications.

* Trinity Centre wants to amend its final development plan so that a three-in-one restaurant arrangement may be approved in place of one of its three, already-approved restaurants. It would allow one building to be shared by three restaurants, Foster's Grille, Noodles & Co. and Panera Bread.
